NEW Writers’ Group Incorporated (NWG Inc) is a not for profit, incorporated association, run by volunteers. All our income (fees, publication sales, grants and donations) is spent on our programs for writers. We publish a digital anthology Expression and the annual print anthology ZineWest (a competition for new Western Sydney writers and local artists). We also publish writing and images in our Pop Up Zine. At our gatherings we offer workshops, writing exercises and open mic. See Charter and 2023 Committee below.

NEW Writers’ Group Incorporated acknowledges the Darug people, the traditional custodians of the land of Parramatta where we meet, and where our online activity is generated. We pay respect to the elders past and present of the Darug nation and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people visiting places where we gather.
